Kare” young storytellers and animators have inspired the spirit of volunteerism
and responsibility through their exciting cartoons and songs, boasting
authentic, imaginative stories. The message of the young producers is simple –
let’s join forces as the youngest generation to change the world by inspiring
others to save lives, care for animals and lend a helping hand. They invite
others to change the world with them, one cartoon at a time.
One of the
cartoons featured on the Emmy-Nominated Cartoon “Kids Kare” series was created
by children from Riverview Medical Center’s Children’s Art Therapy Program. The
teen artists created the animated film short “Tyler’s Reef” to help other
children deal with the loss of a loved one. All the children involved were able
to pull from their own experiences to create a heartfelt story of loss and
love. The project was funded by a grant from the Provident Bank through
collaboration with Riverview Medical Center’s Children’s Art Therapy Program
and Small Factory Productions. Other films featured are: “Ready, Set, Prepare
Yourself” and “Emergency Experts” created in collaboration with New York City’s
Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and the Department of Education, and
“Tails of Love” and “Habitat Heroes” created in partnership with the Purr’n
Pooch Foundation for Animals and Robertsville Elementary School, Robertsville, NJ.
